The Board of Directors: A Great Volunteer Opportunity with PASS

Hi Folks

With the advent of the new and improved PASS website, those of us who work in the Community department here at PASS HQ have noticed a huge increase in the amount of people who want to volunteer. This is just fantastic! I would like to let the entire PASS community know about the Call for Nominations for the PASS Board of Directors that closes on the 24th of October. If you want to get involved with the SQL Server community, network professionally, and have a lot of fun, think about taking a leadership role in PASS.

The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the day-to-day activities of the organization, as well as setting the course for the organization on short- and long-term decisions. There is a large time commitment, but you will be rewarded with travel and networking opportunities.

We have posted all the information you will need at http://www.sqlpass.org/CallforNominations.aspx or you can email me at blythe.morrow@sqlpass.org with any specific questions.

Happy volunteering!

Blythe Morrow
PASS Community Programs Coordinator
